In this tutorial, Linda will show you seven basic folds, tools that will help you to simplify drawing clothing for your human figures and draperies for your still life drawings. Additionally, you’ll see these folds in actual clothing so that they’ll be easier to memorize. Linda also tosses in a little physics education, so you can learn how gravity and points of pressure help to create fabric folds.
Linda Goin carries an A.A. in graphic design, a B.F.A. in visual communications with a minor in business and marketing and an M.A. in American History with a minor in the Reformation. While the latter degree doesn't seem to fit with the first two educational experiences, Linda used her 25-year design expertise on archaeological digs and in the study of material culture. Now she uses her education and experiences in social media experiments.
Accolades for her work include fifteen first-place Colorado Press Association awards, numerous fine art and graphic design awards, and interviews about content development with The Wall St. Journal, Chicago Tribune, Psychology Today, and L.A. Times.
